Edit - you could probably find one CPO or still under factory warranty within your budget, I imagine..? Maybe I've been cynical, but this and the Focus RS are the only new cars that have moved the needle for me in the last 10 years.. then as mentioned a few posts up the RS pops head gaskets on the reg, so by process of elimination it's probably one of the only 'new' cars that would be on my radar to buy at this point.

Although the last time I was shopping for a car my target market was 11+ year old station wagons, so consider what my opinion is worth lol.
Thoughts on the Mustang vs a used Camaro 1LE?

Noel, how do you like the Camaro? Any issues with it so far? I test drove a 2011 SS and enjoyed it.

or spend $16k on an FRS drop $6-7k getting a supercharger professionally installed with a tune and then put the other $10k in the bank. You'll be able to spank Noel's boat and you'll have spent half what he did to do it too!
